MarketCycle360 – Portfolio Results for 11-13-2010

This week saw weakness in techs.  Cisco growth numbers were alarming for the market.  Cisco is a Dow stock, so the signal I got to buy the Dow ETF is a little mystifying.  I always hate to disregard a signal, because they usually turn out right.  I am wary of this market, even though the Treasury is pumping billions of dollars into it.  Inflation driven markets tend to crash pretty hard… eventually.  Meanwhile, being wary, means missing the inflationary bull market.  We’ve seen this movie before, and there is never a happy ending… for the buy and hold.

I’ve got a buy signal for the DOW ETF and a SELL for GE which is contradictory, but lends to my view that this is a weak DOW buy signal.  I have a buy for PVX, my high dividend Canadian Oil play.  Its current yield is 8.8%.  An inflationary period is good for commodities, as they all should go up in price.  I have a core holding of PVX that I will add to.

What is the Zend Optimizer?

The Zend Optimizer is one of the most popular PHP plugins for performance-improvement, and has been available without charge, since the early days of PHP 4. It improves performance by scanning PHP's intermediate code and passing it through multiple Optimization Passes to replace inefficient code patterns with more efficient code blocks. The replaced code blocks perform exactly the same operations as the original code, only faster.

In addition to improving performance, the Zend Optimizer also enables PHP to transparently load files encoded by the Zend Guard.

The Zend Optimizer is a free product available for download from Zend Technologies. Zend Technologies also developed the PHP scripting engine, known as the Zend Engine.
